Hand Embroidered Blossoms using Valdani Perle Cotton
I have been stitching up some blossoms.
These are 'Cast On Stitch' roses with Fly Stitch leaves.
I have heard the Cast On Stitch also referred to
as Needle Lace, when used in this way.
I am hand embroidering some gorgeous
soft yellow wool. I plan to make an
Eight Pointed Civil War Pincushion from this wool.
(Certainly, you would think after making 20+ pincushions,
I would stop... not so,
I just can't seem to get them out of my system !)
I have been looking for signs of Spring,
now that the weather has become warmer.
each one heavy with many petals !
I love when the moss takes over items in
my garden. So pretty.
A smattering of purple tulips...
Old Fashioned Lilac...
